We’re honored that Halo had such a large presence in Petside Media’s ranking, with co-owner Ellen DeGeneres (#2) and nonprofit partner Freekibble.com’s Mimi Ausland #9. Halo is prominent in both of their stories.
Writing about Ellen, Petside says, “The comedian’s goal this year is to donate one million meals to shelter pets and raise awareness of the need for pet adoption. As a part of that goal, she’s partnered with another of our Pet People, Mimi Ausland (#8), the founder of the meal donation site, Freekibble.com to get those meals to pets in need.”
Other members of the Petside top-10 included Dr. Leslie Capin, Cathy King DVM with World Vets, Oprah Winfrey, Mike Arms of Helen Woodward Animal Center, Betty White, and Paula Abdul. Others making Petside’s top-25 included Debi Boies of Pilots N Paws, Kevin Costner, Bernadette Peters, Luke Robinson (of Halo-supported 2 Dogs 2000 Miles), Katherine Heigl, and Rachael Ray.
